Predicted Technology Trends of 2017

We have almost reached the end of 2016 and the advancement of technology shows no sign of slowing down. In honor of the upcoming new year we wanted to look forward to some technology trends expected in 2017.

1) Automated Banking

Financial experts are predicting that automation in banking could replace 30% of bank jobs over the next decade.  This includes advisers and analysts that are being threatened by digitally automated advisers.  Financial Tech startups raised over $22.3 billion in funding throughout 2015 and are predicted to reach even higher numbers in 2017

2) Big Data

Businesses today have more data than ever, which is growing rapidly, and this growth is not going to slow down.  As the data footprint grows, businesses are being forced to think about how they intend to store such large data sets in the future. Big data storage innovations will continue with Cloud Technology leading the way.

3) Workforce Mobility

The workforce is increasingly mobile and technology will continue to evolve to support this trend.  It has been shown that if everyone with jobs that are able to work remotely did so 50% of the time the national savings would be over $700 billion a year.  This number includes:
  • A typical business would save $11,000 per person per year
  • The telecommuters would save between $2,000 and $7,000 a year
  • The greenhouse gas reduction would be the equivalent of taking the entire New York State workforce permanently off the road.
